YOUNG WOMEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
Graves, Kaltrkborx, Elliott, Prokks, McGrkw, Wilson
ON OCTOBER 19, 1887, a permanent charter was given to the newly organized Y. Y: C. A. Each year had added to the strength of the organization, making it truly valuable in the lives of Peru students.
The purpose of the Y. Y. C. A. is two-fold: To unite in the desire to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God; and to have a part in making this life possible for all people. To accomplish their ideals, the girls seek to understand Jesus and to follow Him.
The Student Friendship Fund has been aided by the Y. Y. C. A. for the past four years and every Christmas, baskets for the poor are prepared by this organization.
The Y. Y. C. A. also sponsored jointly with the Y. M. C. A. an institute February 16 and 17. Three international speakers were brought to our campus by that institute. The speakers were Mrs. Kim of Korea, Dr. Ise of University of Kansas and Miss Read of England.
On Sunday morning Mrs. Kim spoke at a union service of the churches. That afternoon there was a program at Eliza Morgan Hall, and on Sunday evening a union meeting was held at the College Auditorium. Monday the speakers talked in several of the classes and Monday night the final meeting was held, Miss Read of England being the speaker. She compared for us English and American college life.

HOME ECONOMICS FRATERNITY
THE Home Economics Department has always been unified because the type of work has naturally brought them close together. It logically followed that the Department should organize.
The creation of this organization took place in 1920 under the direction of Miss Kathryn Towne, and has been growing under the leadership of Miss Edna Weare and Miss Mabel Cook during the year 1929-1930.
This Club has been corresponding with organizations of similar nature in other colleges. Through this work they have gathered reliable and interesting material which has helped them in their own activities. Another objective of the Club has been to become familiar with the leaders in the field of Home Economics. Home Economics is truly a science and it is of value to those planning to teach the subject to know of the progress that has been made in this line of work and of those who have been leaders in that progress.
The officers for the past year have been: Nel!a Baird, president; Carolyn Henningsen, vice-president; Emily Peterson, secretary; Lela McCrory, treasurer..

YOUNG WOMEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
Kimshy, Higgins, Brady, Gocklhy, Cook
MRS. KIM made an exceptional appeal to the students. Her unique way of saying things especially pleased her listeners. She has a deep interest in the young people of America and made many ot the discontented realize that, after all, there were many things to appreciate in our free American life.
Each year the organization sends a delegate to Estes Park. Last summer, Marguerite Graves, the President, and Ellen Wilson were delegates. They brought back much inspiration, and suggestions that were used advantageously in this year’s work.
The Y. M. C. A. has had an unusually large attendance this year, because many of the programs were not only attractive but worth coming out to. One joint program sponsored by the Y. M. and Y. W. that brought out “record-breaking crowds” was made up of speeches on “Ideals.” Three Y. W. girls were guests of the Y. M. and spoke on “The Ideal Man” as a sweetheart, companion, and father. Likewise at Y. W. three Y. M. men spoke on “The Ideal Girl" as a sweetheart, companion, and mother. As a climax to the evening, the speakers answered questions “asked from the sincere depths” of the listeners’ souls. Much was learned.
Among the lively and excellent organizations on Peru campus the Y. W. C. A. has its place, and justly so, as one of the members said, "When 1 am sitting at my study table, weighted down by the worry of my work, I feel as if attending Y. W. is merely a duty. But after I’ve gone, my troubles are lost to the world.”
